Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached photograph and it seems to be either molluscum or folliculitis.
I need to ask you few questions:
Are you having a single lesion?
Do you have pain, itching on this lesion?
What is the duration of this lesion?
If sexual active, is your partner having history of similar lesions in the past or present?
Kindly revert with the answers.
Regards
Dr Asmeet

Brief Answer:
Molluscum contagiosum, get them removed

Detailed Answer:
According to your complaints it seems to be molluscum contagiosum which is a viral infection.
I would recommend you to consult a dermatologist and get them removed by electrocautery or radiofreqency ablation.
